PUBLIC OPINION
[ Also see Opinion ]

Public opinion, a vulgar, impertinent, anonymous tyrant who deliberately makes life unpleasant for anyone who is not content to be the average man.
      - William Ralph Inge

Public opinion, though often formed upon a wrong basis, yet generally has a strong underlying sense of justice.
      - Abraham Lincoln

The pressure of public opinion is like the pressure of the atmosphere; you can't see it--but, all the same it is sixteen pounds to the square inch.
      - James Russell Lowell,
        in an interview, in the "New York Times"

Public opinion sets bounds to every government, and is the real sovereign in every free one.
      - James Madison

Somewhere "out there," beyond the walls of the courthouse, run currents and tides of public opinion which lap at the courtroom door.
      - Justice William H. Rehnquist,
        in an address at the Suffolk University Law School, Boston, Massachusetts, April 17, 1986

Public opinion is stronger than the legislature, and nearly as strong as the ten commandments.
      - Charles Dudley Warner
